Hello NWCC’ers,

April, what a month it has been! Hopefully everyone is staying safe and healthy. It’s already been a rough year for cycling with forced cancellations of many events such as the 2-day MS150 ride, our very own Blue Bonnet Express, other MS 150 recommended rides, and now our Katy Flatlands Century ride as well. During this time, it’s important to make exercising a priority, and whether it’s cycling, walking, hiking, following online workout videos, or something else, keep it up. My dogs and I have been walking on new trails, visiting different dog parks, and I’ve never seen so many neighbors out walking like they are now! I’ve also dusted off my mountain bike and started exploring new places to ride. That’s definitely a change for me, and I’ve really enjoyed it. I hope you’re discovering new, exciting places as well.

 

Although our monthly club meetings haven’t been possible, rest assured your Board of Directors are meeting as scheduled …. electronically, of course. As a group we’ve been sharing information, ideas, and making collective decisions. Our utmost concern is for the health and safety of our club members and the cycling community. As a result, club events are still on hold. USA Cycling has extended its suspension of permits for all sanctioned events through the end of May. Your Board is monitoring the news, and the club intends to continue following recommended social distancing directives. At the end of May we will again evaluate the current state of affairs, and determine how to proceed with club events. One thing we do intend to host is our annual Christmas party. Hopefully the coronavirus pandemic will be behind us, and we'll be able to celebrate the holidays as a group with a little cheer. Until then, keep exercising, stay healthy, and help others in need.
